Welcome to the Minnehaha Master Gardeners.
Annual Plant Sale!
9 a.m. to 12 noon, Saturday, May 11th
Minnehaha Master Gardeners is excited to announce our annual plant sale event. This fundraising event is designed to provide the community with a wide variety of beautiful plants at a low cost.
The plant sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, May 11th in The Woman’s Building at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds at 100 N. Lyon Blvd., Sioux Falls, S.D., 57107. The doors will open at 7:30 a.m. for those who want to be at the front of the line. Minnehaha Master Gardeners invites the Sioux Falls community to join in on this valuable spring gardening opportunity.
Local growers donate perennials, annuals, vegetables, and other plant varieties to the sale. The sale offers high-quality, locally grown bulbs, herbs, tomatoes, flowers, and more. These plants originate from gardens in this region, so they are well-acclimated to the climate and conditions of Minnehaha county.
Minnehaha Master Gardeners aims to work within the Sioux Falls community to broaden gardening knowledge and provide resources for community members. Certified Master Gardeners receive extensive education through South Dakota State University horticulture department, making us regional experts in plants, insects, garden diseases, and gardening techniques. To learn more visit our website at www.minnehahamastergardeners.org or call (605)-782-3290.
Through our annual plant sale event, Minnehaha Master Gardeners looks forward to providing community members with high-quality plants and providing scholarships to area students with the profits.
